WEEKEND POTPOURRI: A JOURNEY VIA PHOTOS, BOOKS, & MOVIES — AUGUST 11

This week and last, I have vicariously enjoyed traveling around London and Paris.  Here are some Saturday Snapshot posts that showcase my journey.  Here is last week’s, and here is today’s post.

Above is a shot of my three A’s (Aubrey, Alec, & Aaron) enjoying Disneyland Paris.

What else is happening this weekend?  I’m enjoying this book that has taken me to North Carolina, where life in a treehouse is magically wonderful…except when it isn’t.

Safe Within, by Jean Reynolds Page, is a novel of how family happens—whether you like it or not

Elaine and Carson Forsyth have returned to the tree house—Elaine’s childhood home, a cabin nestled high in the branches of two oaks beside a North Carolina lake—where forty-nine-year-old Carson has chosen to spend the waning days of his life.

Yes, there are sad moments, but then, happier moments are relived; and as the characters find ways to move on, the story is very inspirational.  And the reader can experience the beautiful settings.

Later I hope to go see this movie.  I love anything with Meryl Streep in it, and I’m also a fan of Tommy Lee Jones.

What will your weekend bring?  I’d love to find out!
